Diva Forever by Nadia Lazizi

I am beside myself with excitement. You see I’ve been immortalised on canvas. Darlings I’ll be more unbearable than ever.

It’s all down to the Super Fine Artist Miss Nadia Lazizi.
And facebook.


Nadia Lazizi

Last year while looking for my old friend Nadia Lazazi on facebook, I found Nadia Lazizi. Easy mistake to make you might say. And it’s a mistake I’m so glad I did make. You see Miss Lazizi is an artist and cutting a long story short, she has painted me.

In March I cycled to Nadia’s studio in Bathgate in stormy conditions and Nadia took the photographs from which she did the painting. She took a wide range of shots from head and shoulder to full length and I’ve no idea which she has painted. All were Nadia’s trademark woman-and-silk.

You’ve seen her plastered. Now see her painted
is the sort of comment I’ve had from friends.  Rather funny I think you’ll agree. I have such amusing friends. Thank you Mr McWilliam for that one. [Read: he’s been crossed off the Christmas card list.]


This is one of the photographs which Nadia took to do the painting

I’ve been snapped up already
It was inevitable I suppose. One of my paintings has sold even before the exhibition has started as a result of pre-show gallery emails. What can I say? Popular you see!

I invite you to join us for the Private View of Linger by Nadia Lazizi
I will of course, be going Wild West side for the private view. A Diva worth her champagne would not pass up such an opportunity to pose and preen in front of her paintings of herself. My dears it’s almost too much!

The exhibition is aptly named as I think you’ll want to.
